Paul Mitchell Takes Center Stage at Stylist Choice Awardsby Paul Mitchell Schools on 7/20/2009
John Paul Mitchell Systems and Paul Mitchell Schools were well represented at Behind the Chair’s 9th annual Stylist Choice Awards on June 9.
Dancing to a remix of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Paul Mitchell Future Professionals wowed the audience of more than 2,000 salon professionals and corporate VIPs at the Rosen Center in Orlando, Florida.
Paul Mitchell Co-owner Angus Mitchell, Global Artistic Director Robert Cromeans, and Paul Mitchell Artistic Director Stephanie Kocielski were among the 50 award presenters who graced the stage as Paul Mitchell Super Skinny was named Favorite Nonchemical Straightening Product and the Paul Mitchell company was added to the Hall of Fame.
Paul Mitchell Schools were among this year’s event sponsors. In a surprise move, Behind the Chair Founder Mary Rector Gable and Paul Mitchell Schools decided to give Paul Mitchell’s sponsorship money to Paul Mitchell graduate Michelle Kelly and her family, along with a special Hairdressers Unlocking Hope award. Michelle, who was featured in the first edition of behindthechair.com On Paper, overcame abuse and homelessness and is working to build a better life for herself and her daughters.
